Waka Flocka Flame & Slim Dunkin About
After Waka Flocka Flame released his debut mixtape in early 2009 (Salute Me or Shoot Me) and achieved success in Atlanta with a few local hits, (“Dreads N Gold”, “O Let’s Do It”), he decided to bring his friend into the rap game, Slim Dunkin. Though Dunkin had only been rapping for a few months prior to making music, he and Flocka released a collaborative mixtape on July 23, 2009, titled Twin Towers.
Following the mixtape release, Waka Flocka and Slim Dunkin often collaborated on each other’s music, with Slim Dunkin building an impressive music resume of his own. The initial announcement for the sequel to Twin Towers, Twin Towers 2: No Fly Zone, was planned for a 2010 release, hosted by Trap-A-Holics (and used a very different mixtape cover). The mixtape saw its release more than a year later and a little more than two years after the first installment (on August 5, 2011), this time with different DJs assuming mixtape hosting duties: DJ Teknikz, DJ Kash, and DJ Spinz.
Unfortunately, both Slim Dunkin’s career and the mixtape series would be tragically cut short as he was murdered months later at an Atlanta recording studio. Though he’s gone too soon, Dunkin’s friends and family has kept, and is still keeping, his name alive to this day.
